To hear my children tell it, I love to
You mean, aside from my personal belief that a raw and living vegan diet is the best diet for humans? Some of the benefits I've personally experienced when eating a raw and living diet:
- added nutritional value
- mental clarity
- renewed energy
- improved digestion
- waste/toxin removal
- and countless other benefits
RAW? How? A raw and living vegan diet consists of eating unprocessed fruit, vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds in their raw form and preferably live when possible. These foods are not heated above the body's temperature in order to preserve the precious enzymes that they contain. Added oils, conventional condiments and salt are usually avoided.
Some of the meals I plan to eat consist of large colorful hearty salads, smoothies and a host of delicious live meals. Here are some pics of today's dishes:

I've been preparing for this week for the past 3 weeks, initially eating 50:50 (raw:cook ratio) and ending with a week of eating 1 cooked meal a day and all other meals being live.
With a host of supporters in my cheering section, I'm sure to succeed. I'm excited about this challenge to say the least. Stay tuned for some quick yummy recipes!
Ready, Set, Goooooooo!
